On Friday, September 22, the annual Diamonds & Denim event saw shiny rocks and lots of jeans out for an evening of fun.

With well over 140 people in attendance, including many Locals 175 & 633 members, the fundraiser was a great success.

Through raffle ticket sales and a silent auction, guests raised $9,400 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. The grand prize for the evening was a flight for two anywhere WestJet flies. VIA Rail offered a great prize, and many local businesses and community members stepped up as well.

Thank you to Metro in Belleville, Picton, Napanee, Trenton, and Cobourg, plus Food Basics Belleville, for donating the food.

Also, thank you to all of the amazing local businesses that donated prizes and sponsored the event. In addition, a huge thank you goes out to Christine & Dean for organizing the event and all of our volunteers.
